Mojo Sketch and New Paper!

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Good Morning!

Ok, I know I said I was going to be a conservative stamper for a while, but I have a confession to make: I can not walk past a great paper stack and not have it come home with me. It's just not possible. So now I have some new K&Company paper to play with. And it's gorgeous!! Don't worry; I used a Michael's coupon on it :)

I couldn't wait and used some of it to create this card with this week's Mojo Sketch Challenge MOJO86. I loved this sketch! It was perfect for these Studio G $1 stamps. Yes, one dollar stamps! And the sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink's Board and Beams set. I thought they worked together so well!

I stamped the images onto Very Vanilla with Timber Brown StazOn and colored them with SU inks and an aquapainter. I added some of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the center of the flowers for some sparkle. Then I lightly sponged the edges with Antique Linen and matted them with the chocolate Bazzil paper. The horizontal panel was matted with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and it's edges were scalloped with decorative scissors. Then it was matted onto some Bazzil paper and the bottom edge was cut with some larger scalloped decorative scissors. I added a small piece of ribbon to the top of the panel just to balance out the panel. And that was it. I really liked how this one turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope your Wednesday is a great one!

I agree with Karen. We all need one now for when you move that has all the deets of your new addy. I must confess I got some new paper over the weekend too and I think it is the same pack you got and with a coupy. Love everything about this card.

Sandra, I love reading your blog, cause it's like we were separated at birth or something. I went to Archievers to get my free cardstock...do you have one of these near you? They send out a coupon for5 free sheets of cardstock each month. Every month I walk in there telling myself "just get your free paper" and $10 later I'm outta there with my free paper. Geesh.

Love this paper and the images!

LOL, I totally feel you on the paper addiction! Although, I think mine has morphed into a stamp/scrap addiction... If I see something cute, it *must* come home with me! LOL

Great card, and the papers are fantastic!

Christi said...

This is fantastic! Love the layout!!

Catherine said...

Loving this card and your new DP! I only wish I had your restraint when it comes to buying. Oh, I walk in with coupies and use them. It's just that most of the time I can't get out of Archivers for less than $60. We won't talk about the online stores - yikes!

Danni said...

Lorie said...

Lady, you can work wonders with a $1 stamp! This is fantastic, and the paper is TDF!! K&Co. is some of my absolute favorite!!! Stunning card!!

I'm so in love with this. You're right it was a super fun sketch to work with and I LOVE how you used it. My card for tomorrow deviated a bit from the sketch but I love the idea of using 3 shapes and or images in the middle. FAB card as always!!
